Proposals to print the university calendar in two parts, the first in October land the second in December, have been considered by the University Council.
This was reported to a recent meeting of the student association executive by the retiring student delegate to Council, Mr. P. V. O'Brien.
He said the matter was finally referred to the professorial board.
The first part would include information on regulations, bursaries, scholarships, and other benefits and would probably take the place of the present university handbook. The second would include details of timetables and courses.
Up to the present it had not been possible to print the calendar before the New Year.
The council has made provision for people falling Stage I language units to be accredited with a reading knowledge, if the examiner thinks fit.
Tours to schools by students were to be discussed with the executive by a sub-committee of the council. Public Relations Officer Ian McKinnon pointed out that it was intended to hold the tours in August. Any long delay would hamper the clerical work of his committee in arranging them, he said.
Executive appointments made at the meeting were: Boyd Wilson Field Allocation Committee, M. Boldt; Student Accommodation Advisory Committee, G. Bertram; International Co-operation Year, 1965, T. Broadmore; Travel Officer, Miss S. Madgwick; Congress Committee, B. Easton.
Applications were called for the posts of concessions director and I.D. cards controller.
Recommendations for alterations to the student association constitution would be called for within a month, President Chris Robertson reported.
It was hoped that suggestions for constitutional reform could be sent to a draughtsman at the beginning of the third term and that, a revised constitution would be ready for ratification near the end of this year, or early next year.
Half an hour for the airing of student grievances and the accounting of executive members to students is to be set aside at every second executive meeting. These meetings would be held in one of the common rooms, the executive decided.
A suggestion that the association should buy 1000 New Zealand University Students' Association pennants was turned down by the executive. Secretary Roger Lawrence suggested that Victoria buy 100 (of 6000 printed).
It was finally decided to offer to sell the pennants on behalf of NZUSA, but not to buy them directly.
